  1. 1. Time to change : zipping sustainability into operations

    Author : Anna Sannö; Deleryd Mats; Carsten Reuter; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; sustainable operations; environment; technological change; Innovation and Design; innovation och design;

    Abstract : Industry is a key player in the transition to a sustainable society, where manufacturing companies need to respond to the challenges of environmental concerns in several ways. The need for managing environmental technological change in production systems is and will continue to be a challenge for manufacturing companies, as they often tend to focus on short-term priorities to stay economically competitive, rather than developing the organisation to manage longer-term environmental competitiveness.
